Feeling very tired and emotional lately, I haven't been sleeping well at all. Last Sunday night I got 3 hours, Monday night got 4 hours, Tuesday 5 hours etc - I was on a roll and by Friday night I had worked up to 8 hours sleep - bliss!! OH thinks its a bit strange, but hey - I dont deliberately NOT sleep, I'm just having so much trouble dropping off lately.

Despite the tiredness, I still managed 4 days at the gym last week, and had a really clean week food-wise. I had a few aches and pains though - on Thursdays cycle class my lower back was pinging, and my right knee was hurting. Then on Friday morning at Step my lower back was still hurting a little. I tried to take it a little easier, and stretch, but it didn't help much. I dont know what I've done to it.

Come Friday though I was knackered (as you would be on so little sleep) and so decided on a whim to crack open a bottle of Moet that I've had sitting there for AGES. I'd been saving it for a 'special occasion' - but that never seems to happen, and I'd never ever tasted the stuff before, so I thought 'bugger it' and opened it. I dont drink much anymore (it really makes me feel ill lately) so by the second sip I felt quite giddy! I could feel the alcohol coursing through my veins - I cant believe I've turned into such a cheap drunk! Well, not cheap on Moet, but you know what I mean! I finished the bottle off on Saturday night, and felt quite disgusting for doing so - I felt drunk but in a horrible queazy way.

I'm still not sleeping well this week - as witnessed by the staff at the specialist centre where I went yesterday morning - at 7am, for an appointment. Turns out I got the date wrong, the appointment isn't for another two weeks! D'OH!

And then this morning I accidentally put black eye-liner on my eyebrows (I thought I had picked up the brown eyebrow pencil) so I had to go wash my face because black eyebrows aren't a good look!!

I think I need a holiday!

Hey Hils, where did you disappear to at the gym. I went to say hello and couldn't find you.

Have you tried Vital Greens in the morning - if you get over the colour of it, it actually tastes quite okay but it will definately give you a boost in energy and I think sleep patterns. I sleep like a log now that I think I have my whole supplement intake down pat. And that is good as it helps with muscle recovery and growth when you get into a deep sleep.
